Font Awesome PDFs

Today I released Font Awesome PDFs. This is a collection of small PDF files, each containing a single icon from the wonderful Font Awesome Version 2.0 project.

I recently wanted to use the Font Awesome icons in a project. The original form is in a font – thus the name. The font format did not meet my project’s needs and so I spent a little time searching the Internet. I was looking for alternative vector based version of these icons. I remember finding SVG editions but SVG is not natively supported by Mac OS X. My searches turned up nothing immediately usable, so I created my own.

The collection is free and available through the same permissive licence that allowed me to create this work – CC BY 3.0.
